Fatal Truck Trailer Accident Attorneys

We Are The Truck Trailer Accident Attorneys You Deserve


Truck accidents, though they occur in a split second, change lives forever. For the victims of a truck accident with severe personal injuries, the road to recovery is long and difficult. For families who lose a loved one, nothing will ever be the same.

At Hassakis & Hassakis, P.C. our truck accident attorneys understand that the challenges our clients face extend far beyond the scene of the accident. We have the experience, through years of investigating and litigating truck accident and crash cases, to understand and appreciate the issues that will confront you, not just now, but 10, 20 and even 30 years into the future. We focus on assessing the individual needs of our clients, listening to their stories and tailoring our approach to their expectations and desires.

Our clients include the drivers and passengers of motor vehicles, as well as truck and tractor trailer drivers who have been injured by other truckers or vehicles.

Experience Counts

At the personal injury law firm of Hassakis & Hassakis, P.C. we help people receive full and fair compensation for injuries suffered in an accident with a commercial truck. With more than sixty combined years of continual service and trial experience, our attorneys have seen how truck accident injuries or a wrongful death can devastate a family on Illinois highways such as I-74, I-64, I-57, I-24, I-80, I-90, I-94, I-70 and I-72. We are ready to help.

If your family has been impacted by an accident with a commercial truck, contact us at the truck accident lawyers’ offices of Hassakis & Hassakis, P.C. We handle all parts of your truck accident injury case, from a thorough initial investigation to negotiating a full and fair settlement, or taking your case to court if necessary. We are committed to excellence and are dedicated to helping you receive the maximum compensation to which you may be entitled. One thing is for sure, once we take on your case we aggressively seek out to determine all the facts and law to ready the case for trial from the very start. It is in this way that the very best settlement offer can be achieved on a case. You have certainly heard the phrase that it’s much better to negotiate from a position of strength, and we wholeheartedly subscribe to that principle.

What Does First Class Representation Mean to Us?

We understand that these are strong words, and we take great care to put meaning behind them. That meaning is not just about the outcome of the case, but also about the personal attention that we bring to the case. We know that accident victims and the families that we represent are facing tough times. We want to make certain that they don’t have to face them alone.

You will not be alone when you choose our law firm. You can expect to interact with an attorney who is truly dedicated to standing by your side through every step of the process. Yes, there are law firms out there that refer tough truck accidents cases out to other law firms. We’re not one of them. In fact, those firms send their cases to us. In other words, you can expect to have the same attorney on your side from the start to the finish. We will help you through this.

Working to Maximize Your Compensation

Truck accidents are different from other motor vehicle accidents in a number of crucial respects. There are certain specific federal and state rules that govern truck drivers, covering the operation of commercial tractor-trailers, the qualification of drivers, the records a trucking company must maintain and many other areas. Additionally, millions of dollars each year are spent by trucking companies and their insurance companies training drivers and other employees on what should be done in the event of a truck accident. Insurers for trucking companies will send their own team of investigators to the scene of an accident immediately. Almost from the moment an accident happens, insurance companies and trucking companies will look for every possible way to protect their bottom line, and limit the amount of money they will pay to injured victims.

That is where we come in. The trucking accident attorneys of Hassakis & Hassakis, P.C. conduct in-depth investigations, consult with recognized experts, contact witnesses early on and employ other proven legal strategies. Our preparation for trial begins with our initial involvement in a case, as we continue working until justice has been achieved.

This approach has helped us achieve a record of success. Our firm’s 60 years of experience litigating truck and personal injury cases is available for you. Through verdicts and settlements, we have obtained numbers of awards in excess of hundreds of thousands of dollars and for millions of dollars. Our trucking attorneys have the experience necessary to get the results you need and deserve.
